About the Show/Event
Information for An Evening with Armando Iannucci at Gillian Lynne Theatre, West End (Talk). The creator of cult films and TV shows such as The Thick of It, The Death of Stalin and Veep is no stranger to political commentary or satirical remarks on contemporary life... Now Armando has written Pandemonium, an epic mock-heroic poem in response to the global pandemic. Live in conversation, Armando will share the story of how Orbis Rex, Young Matt and his Circle of Friends, Queen Dido and the blind Dom'nic did battle with âa wet and withered bat' from Wuhan. Alongside hilarious readings, Armando will explore the inspiration behind the poem. Plus, he'll talk more broadly about his thirty-year career, the dysfunctional relationship between politicians and the media, and the very serious business of comedy.
